Goodbye sina services

I had been using it for very long, I forget exactly how long, but it should be like 10 years or so.  It features an all-in-one account, that means email, web hosting and photo album and I've been using them all.  101M was offered for free, and it was shared among these three services.  Very generous when it was launched.

First up is the landing page, you could then select which service that you're going to use.

This is the email interface, I believe it is among the first web based email provider who would allow you to show the photographs attachment inline!  Of course, it's a standard feature nowadays, but it was a kind of pioneer by then.  They also got a spam filter which is again, innovative by then.

The web hosting interface, you have a full feature file manager.  You could also edit your files directly, again, very nice even with today's standard.

 Finally, a screen shot showing the sina based URL.

I'm going to miss this great service, but non-profitable stuff must be ended eventually.
